Representative Joe Pitre
At Your Service
Frances Scott Key (inspired to write the Star Spangled Banner) recalled the words of George
that sets the American Christian apart from all other people in the world is
that they will die on their feet rather than live on their knees.”
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance." - Cicero , 55 BC. We haven't learned alot in 2069 years!

I have been very busy since you sending me to Concord last November. I have reached a goal of being assigned to the House Finance Committee, Division II, which covers budgets for Departments of Safety, Transportation, Education, Police Standards & Training and Lottery. This work is probably the busiest committee in the NH House actually working weekends and evenings. There are shortfalls of $147 million in the NH budget. The highway fund is $109 million short and there is a scramble to make a balanced budget. I thank the voters for giving me the opportunity to serve on such a prestigious committee. To satisfy the shortfall in highway, there are efforts to increase registration fees. I have reminded fellow committee members, that I made a promise to you, my constituents and that promise was to hold the line on any new taxes or fees and any downshifting of cost to cities and towns.
I will keep you posted!
